The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is expected to officially outdoor his campaign team for the 2016 election on December 19, 2015. He will make this announcement at the party’s Annual Delegates’ Conference, scheduled to take place in Sunyani.

Embattled Reggae artiste, Ekow Micah broke down in tears today when an ACCRA circuit court acquitted and discharged him for unlawful possession of narcotics. In his judgment presiding judge Justice Aboagye Tandor said the prosecution failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt the guilt of the accused. Micah was initially assisting the police in an alleged rape and sodomy case against Black Stars Captain, Asamoah Gyan. However, the police, during a search at his residence, found substances confirmed to be weed. 

The police administration can no longer seek injunctions from circuit courts to prevent demonstrations. This is because the human rights court presided over by Justice Dennis Dominic Agyei has ruled in favour of pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance in the case it brought against the Attorney General and the Ghana Police Service over the mandate of the circuit court interpreting the Public Order Act. The Accra regional police PRO Afia Tenge speaking to Pulse.com.gh said the police will respect the court’s decision.

Football’s governing body FIFA has released the final three players to compete for the FIFA Ballon D’or. Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal and Real Madrid, Lionel Messi of Argentina and Barcelona and Neymar of Brazil and Barcelona will take on one another for the 2015 award.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo is the current holder of the award having shared the last seven with Argentina's Lionel Messi. The winner of the award will be announced at a FIFA gala on Monday, January 11, 2016.
